Kyle Richards flaunted her toned frame by sharing a quick mirror selfie on her Instagram stories on Wednesday during a productive gym session.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star, 54, who has adamantly denied taking Ozempic to lose weight, could be seen sporting monochromatic fitness attire as she enjoyed a weekday workout.
As she stood on a mat placed in the middle of the room, the reality star sported a plain black tank top as well as sculpted, black Alo leggings from the high-end fitness brand.
For a pop of color to her overall ensemble, the TV personality slipped into a pair of high-top sneakers that contained hues of pink and white.
Her brunette locks were pulled back into a ponytail, allowing long strands to border the sides of her face.
Exercise equipment could be seen surrounding the media star, who currently boasts 4.1 million followers on Instagram.
Natural sunlight streamed through French doors that were located on the opposite side of the room behind her, along with a smaller, circular window on the wall.
Kyle has shared snaps of herself in the small, home gym in the past while enjoying fitness routines.
Also on Wednesday, the mother of four uploaded a snap of herself playing pool while dressed to the nines in a fashionable black minidress with flashy rhinestone straps.
As she enjoyed the game at what appeared to be a birthday bash, the star added a short caption over the photo by typing out, ‘Straight shooter.’
The TV personality has recently slammed rumors that claim she is taking the medication Ozempic to achieve weight loss.
The drug is usually prescribed to individuals who have type 2 diabetes and need to improve their blood sugar. In 2021, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved Ozempic to be used by individuals suffering from general obesity.
Richards spoke out against the ‘frustrating’ rumors last month in February, and told Page Six at the time, ‘I had never heard of it.’
‘I had heard of it when they accused me, but I’d already lost weight by the time I had heard about Ozempic, so it was really frustrating to me,’ she explained to the outlet.
The star continued, ‘What I don’t want to get lost in this is that I want to be able to inspire people.’
Kyle expressed that her slimmer figure was simply due to a healthier lifestyle as well as sobriety.
‘I stopped drinking almost seven months ago, I don’t eat bad, sugar, pizza, donuts, carbs … so I’d rather be inspiring than people making up stories about me,’ and added that she stops by the gym, ‘for two hours every day.’
The reality star adamantly stated, ‘I’ve never tried Ozempic, none of those diet drugs and now hearing that diabetics can’t even get their hands on it, it would be extremely irresponsible to do that so it’s extra offensive to me.’
Later last month, Kyle once again defended herself when Real Housewives Of New Jersey star, Melissa Gorga, accused Richards of taking the medication to achieve her slim frame.
In the comment section of an Instagram post, the star, who is currently married to Mauricio Umansky, clapped back at a social media user who claimed she was taking the drug while also stating a Real Housewives star ‘told on’ her, per Page Six.
‘This is not true,’ she simply stated, adding, ‘MY fellow Housewives never said such a thing. Another Housewife from a different franchise aka Melissa stated she assumed I was but then texted an apology to me.’
Melissa Gorga had called out Kyle for taking Ozempic during an appearance on Sirius XM’s Jeff Lewis Live earlier in January.
However, she later explained that after Richards publicly slammed the rumors, she took back what she had originally said about the fellow reality star.
Other celebrities have defended themselves against rumors that they have been taking the diabetes medication, including model Julia Fox.
Earlier this month, the Uncut Gems actress explained on her Forbidden Fruits podcast, ‘All these people are coming for me saying that I take the weight loss things… people are saying that I’m taking Ozempic or whatever it’s called.’
‘I’m not and I’ve never have… I would never do that. There are diabetics that need it,’ the mother of one admitted.
Shahs Of Sunset star, Golnesa ‘GG’ Gharachedaghi, was one star that revealed she was taking Ozempic for the purpose of weight loss.
In a lengthy video shared on her main Instagram page last month in February, she opened up to her followers about taking the medication and also showed how the shot works.
But soon after, the personality received backlash from social media users, with one writing, ‘Leave the medication for those with medical issues!’
